May Hill

May Hill Class comprises of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 children, aged 4-7. This year (2019/20) there are twenty three children in the class and they are taught by Mrs Tyler (class teacher), Mrs Connelly (teaching assistant) and Mrs Heron (teaching assistant).

The younger children (Reception) follow the national Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum which covers seven areas of learning:-

-Communication and language

-Physical development

-Personal, social and emotional development

-Literacy

-Mathematics

-Understanding the world

-Expressive art and design

The curriculum is very play based with the children taking a lead in their learning, supported by the adults. They are encouraged to use a wide range of resources in both the inside and outside areas. Continuous assessment enables the staff to judge when the children are ready for more formal learning.

In Years 1 and 2 the children follow the National Curriculum through termly topics which enable the development of skills and the acquisition of knowledge in a stimulating, creative and fun way.

We may not be able to get out and about at the moment but in our imagination we can travel to the moon! Yes, we're learning about journeys! We've been listening to The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Rosie's Walk, Winnie's Flying Carpet and the Owl and the Pussycat. We will be making models, drawing maps, writing stories, performing poetry, singing songs and finding out about famous journeys.

Some of us are learning at home and some of us are up at school (it's very quiet!) but we are looking forward to the day when all of us make a journey back to Pauntley School. Stay safe and keep smiling.
